We are proud to sponsor the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards 2020!

The search has begun for the Kent Teacher of the Year. Organisers of the prestigious annual awards event are now accepting nominations from the public, professionals in the education sector and from school staff.

The event aims to find the very best teachers, support staff and volunteers working within schools in Kent, Medway and Bexley. We are searching for individuals and teams of people who go above and beyond the call of duty for the benefit of their pupils and school community. To nominate, visit Kent Teacher of the Year and complete the nomination page.

The launch for the 2020 contest – organised by the KM Charity Team – was held at the Ashford International Hotel, which will host a glittering awards event in May 2020. The event is endorsed by celebrity Terry Waite.

We are proud to be supporting the event and will present one of the top awards on the night. Academic categories include: literacy, maths, sport, foreign languages, science – biosciences, physics, chemistry, forensics, drama and performing arts, history, citizenship and politics, fine art and music and early years foundation stage leader, as well as the major categories of primary school teacher of the year, secondary school teacher of the year, team of the year, senior leadership team and head teacher of the year.

For volunteers and non-teaching staff there are also categories to trumpet their contribution to the school. Everything from career advisers, those involved with pastoral care, school secretaries, dinner ladies and caretakers will be recognised through the event, as will members of the PTA, school governors and volunteer readers.

A panel of judges select winners from each local authority area, and then have the tough task of picking the county’s overall champions. All will be revealed at the awards event this May at the Ashford International Hotel.

Phil Reynolds, Senior Manager and Academies and Education Specialist said: “We are delighted to be sponsoring the Kent Teacher of the Year Awards again for 2020, where we will be sponsoring the ‘School Business Manager of the year’ category. The event has grown and grown over the past 20 years and we look forward to being a part of the process celebrating the hard work of the individuals nominated.”

Louise Thrower, a Supervisor and also one of the firm’s Academies and Education Specialists attended the launch for the 2020 contest and is looking forward to her role in reading what we anticipate will be more than 1,000 nominations this year: “The schools and education sector is one I love being involved in and there is nothing more rewarding than seeing those who dedicate so much of their time being rewarded.”

Kent Teacher of the Year is staged by the KM Charity Team and is supported by Kent County Council, Medway Council and the KM Group. Nominations are accepted from January 1 to March 1 each year. Visit www.kentteacheroftheyear.co.uk to submit your entry.
